The training I deliver covers a wide range of subject areas and can be tweeked to fit your needs. My aim is to work with practitioners to help them reflect and develop their practice, feel inspired in their work and ultimately bring about better outcomes for children.
Practitioners need to feel engaged and involved during courses, so we discuss, we think, we talk and we do, sometimes on our own, sometimes in a small group and sometimes everyone together. I rarely use powerpoint, whilst I believe it has its place, I feel active learning is much more productive.
Don't just take my word for it, read some practitioner feedback on the training courses and feedback page.
Here are just some of the benefits of attending one of my training courses:
- a relaxed and friendly atmosphere
- an opportunity to reflect on current practice away from the setting
- being challenged to look at how best to move forward
- receive new ideas
- generate clear goals and targets for implementation on return to the setting
- practical ideas and suggestions which are effective for all types of settings
- a realistic approach
- training from an experienced and knowledgable early years professional
